Art Coursekim
with Kim Thompson 10am – 5pm
Maximum Participants: 12

On this 2-day course you will be able to work from start to finish on a painting under the experienced guidance of Kim Thompson.
You will tackle the fast drying time of the paint, building layers and adding details, including eyes, fur and textures found in nature to achieve a realistic finish to the painting. Everyone will be encouraged to experiment with brushes and sponges, and to try the techniques Kim uses in her paintings.
This course will appeal to those already working with acrylics who would like to learn some new tips and ways of working which they can use in their own paintings.
